- Things to Do
While Mt. Hood Railroad offers year-round rides, it’s holiday excursion, The Train to Christmas Town, is exceptional. The magic begins the minute you board with music and singing. You’ll meet book characters like Bumblebee the cuddly polar bear and the postman delivering letters to Santa. As if that wasn’t enough,elves dance in the aisles leading sing-alongs to Christmas songs. And wheyou hear the “Chocolate Christmas” song begin to play it’s time for cookies and hot chocolate to be served!
When you finally arrive at Christmas Town you get to wave to Santa and his elves before they climb aboard to walk through the rail cars to greet each boy and girl and present them with a special gift. Make sure to buy your tickets early for this seasonal experience.
